Method

1

Preheat the oven to 180°C/ fan 160c.

Grease a 2lb loaf tin and line with parchment paper.

2

Whisk the caster sugar, 75g soft light brown sugar and the butter in a bowl with a hand held mixer until light and pale.

3

Add in a little flour and one egg. Mix through, repeat with the other egg.

4

Add in the rest of flour, baking powder, vanilla and a pinch of salt until everything is mixed through and smooth.

5

Peel the bananas and mash two of them well with the back of a fork. Add to your cake mixture and stir through along with the chocolate chips and walnuts.

6

Pour the mix into the prepared loaf tin, slice the remaining banana in half lengthways and arrange on the top of the loaf.

7

Sprinkle with the remaining brown sugar then place in the oven for approximately 50-55 minutes.

It should be risen, golden and a skewer comes out clean when the banana bread is ready. Cool for 10 minutes in the tin before turning out onto a wire rack to cool completely.
